Seeking asylum from your own procrastinating Internet habits? I certainly have in the past (see "Minimize Desktop Distractions," 4 December 2008), and always keep my eyes peeled for new applications designed to keep me on top of my work. If you're in the same boat, consider trying the latest version of Fred Stutzman's Internet-blocking application Freedom. Changes in the most recent update include increased support for applications that require some share of network access, better support for remote filesystems, and enhanced stability. Also, an unspecified bug related to Microsoft Word has been fixed. (Free, 771 KB)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
